About Roel and Mariëlle
We are a dutch couple working in the Amsterdam area as PhD molecular biologist at the Academic Medical Center and owner of a medium-sized software company. When we aren't working you will probably find us up in the air (paragliding or flying a sports airplane), down below (diving and shooting UW pictures).
Roel and Mariëlle purchased this Villa in 2011
Why Roel and Mariëlle chose Santa Barbara
After having spent our holiday in several other houses on the island we thought it would be exciting to look for one that could be our own. One of the first houses we found was Casa Presioso and we immediately fell in love with its great lay-out and really spectacular views. Over the last couple of years, with the help of the great ideas and feedback of our guests, we managed to continuously improve the house inside and out, and we intend to keep doing that, as we love to be there ourselves as well!
What makes this Villa unique
Nothing beats sitting on our outdoor dining terrace after dinner, enjoying a drink and a great sunset or gazing at the stars and lights of fishing boats on the sea at night...

Amazing home & fabulous hosts!
Casa Presioso is a beautiful property. We loved everything about it. The pool is wonderful. I loved the mineral water. The kitchen is perfectly stocked. We were supplied with some essentials and that was very appreciated. The rinse ranks and dive locker are great perks. It was so helpful to rent the truck too! Dive Friends of Bonaire were very easy to work with. We did a night dive...amazing. Beds are comfy! Nat was very helpful. It so nice to be met at the airport with a personal chauffeur. Roel gave excellent dive site info. I think we’re going to retire there. I am looking forward to coming back ASAP. Thank you for sharing your home! We loved it!!
Wonderful diving trip!
This house is set up beautifully for divers (and others). The design of bedrooms downstairs is really brilliant and the convenience for washing and storing dive equipment is very appreciated. The outdoor seating and pools were a great luxury after finishing diving. We used the outdoor grill as well as the very stocked kitchen. Having the optional truck rental saved us time and cost compared to a traditional rental vehicle. We had 5 people in our group and although we were at capacity with the truck it worked very well.
Overall just a wonderful time and we would definitely stay there again!!!
Exactly what we were looking for
A great place with full privacy and a wonderful view. All amenities you could need. We enjoyed our stay very much. Thank You!
Loved this house!
This was our second stay at Casa Precioso, our home away from home. The house is everything and more that it advertises. The kitchen is a chefs dream and so is the grill out back by the poolside. Meals on one of the two dining areas make for a relaxing time. The views inspires photographers, with views of parrots, iguanas, donkeys and who knows what’s next? The dive locker and rinse stations make life very easy for all divers. The bedrooms are spacious and the beds very comfortable. The vehicle provided is reliable and spacious. Casa Precioso is truly a wonderful home to stay and we look forward to staying there many more times.
Thanksgiving at Casa Presioso
We visited this property with one other couple and their adult niece - spending a beautiful week in gorgeous bonaire. The house was well laid out for privacy, and the pool was appreciated daily as an antidote to the hot humid afternoons. The property manager Nathalie was very responsive and even located an electric mixer so that I could make a special cake for a friend's birthday. The property is beautifully landscaped and private.
Nathalie met us at the airport and helped orient us to our surroundings. The property is well suited for scuba divers, and the rinse areas was much appreciated - pressed into daily use. Extra snorkel equipment provided was also very helpful when I had issues with mine. Owners were very responsive to our many questions prior to arrival.
A lovely spot in a breathtaking place.
